AID-TO-DECISION FOR MOTORWAY NETWORK MANAGEMENT: THE EXPERT SYSTEM OPERA

The expert system OPERA, which is to be demonstrated in the Scottish FEDICS inter-urban motorway network, has been designed for generating information and guidance message on VMS (Variable Message Sign). OPERA makes use of an on-line motorway network traffic flow simulation model for reconstruction and forecasts of traffic patterns and an on- line expert system module for strategy generation. This article describes: a) the systems architecture of OPERA; b) the SIMRES motorway network simulation model; c) the SELECT module; and d) the Man-Machine interface.
